Here in Maringuoin we have the necessary conditions for snow and it feels that cold. It is literally colder here right now than it is at the Puerto de Navacerrada, a ski station above Madrid. Here is a recipe for a carajillo, which they must be drinking there and I should drink here:
* 1 oz brandy
* 3 grains roast coffee
* 1 squeeze lemon
* 1 cup espresso coffee
Heat brandy, lemon and coffee grains for several minutes. Pour into coffee cup. Add 1 cup of espresso coffee.
